2016 - You Rocked!
Whoa! What a year 2016 has been! I’ve met some truly lovely people, worked in some stunning venues and worked with some of the best suppliers in the business!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, being a wedding photographer in the North East and Northumberland is the best! We really are spoiled rotten when it comes to breathtaking venues and the most picturesque scenery.
A combination of the above has allowed me to capture some images that I absolutely love! Here, are just a few of my many, many favourites!
Thomas & Charlotte - Blagdon Parlour, Northumberland Wedding.
We managed to catch the last embers of light at Thomas & Charlotte's beautiful Northumberland wedding. We quickly hurried out to one of the many secluded ares around what is a lovely venue - the look on Charlotte's face says it all!
Andrea & Joe - Le Petit Chateau, Northumberland Wedding.
These are tow images that I absolutely love from Andrea & Joe's Le Petit Chateau wedding. The first just says everything that there is to say about the place and the couple, even in typical moody Northumberland weather, the venue and both Andrea & Joe radiate warmth and love!
The second image makes me smile every time I see it. The idea was for Andrea & Joe's little Chihuahua doggy to be ring bearer. When pooch was a bit hesitant to carry the ring down the aisle Joe produced an absolute masterstroke by whipping out a carefully wrapped McDonalds Chicken Nugget that had been purchased that morning for just such an eventuality - the results speak for themselves!
Ashlea & David - Newton Hall, Northumberland Wedding.
When the father of the bride sees his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time, things can get teary! That was definitely the case for Ashlea as her dad walked into the room minutes before her ceremony.
Sam & Adam - Lartington Hall Wedding.
My last wedding of 2016 and what a way to finish! Sam & Adams wonderful, winter wedding at Lartington Hall was amazing from beginning to end! The temperature was approaching freezing, just like during their engagement shoot earlier in the month, but that didn't get in the way of the celebrations nor us making some gorgeous images!
Ashlea & David - Engagement Shoot, Newcastle Quayside.
When engagement shoots are mentioned, there's a tendency to think of meadows with tall grass or a lush green woodland. They're great locations and I have a ball shooting there. But urban locations offer something different and no less magical! During Ashlea and Davids shoot we had a wander around Newcastle & Gateshead quayside and stumbled upon some epic graffiti featuring the likes of David Bowie and this iconic Metro train......it was too good to pass up!
Sarah & Benji - Middleton Hall, Northumberland Wedding.
When your wedding venue has it's own private lake, you'd be mad not to use it! That exactly what Sarah & Benji did during their beautiful, elegant wedding at Middleton Hall in Northumberland.
Nothing like a bit of party action too - this is why I love to stay for a while after the first dance.......
So, 2016 has been pretty damn fantastic! A HUGE thank you to every single couple I've worked with this year! 2017 is shaping up to be pretty special too!
